A multi-layer approach to urban re generation: energy efficiency and comfort condition optimization

Andrea Boeri, Jacopo Gaspari


The paper provides an overview of the key elements of a research project focused on the development of a multilayer platform aimed at supporting regeneration process at district scale particularly for what concerns the improvement of comfort conditions. The paper describes the adopted methodologies and the main stages in which the research is organized. The backbone of the multi-layer platform is described according to the purpose and to the expected impacts. The role of the tool and of ICT in increasing the end-users’ awareness about the potential benefit deriving by the adoption of efficient solution and energy saving measures is discussed. A reflection concerning the barriers to further developments and the most promising implementation opportunities completes the text.
